Hernia is a condition which occurs when an organ pushes through the opening of the muscle or tissue that holds the organ in place. It can occur in various areas like the upper thigh, belly button and groin areas but most commonly it happens in the abdomen. Common symptoms of hernia include:
Pain or discomfort in the affected area
Pressure, or a feeling of heaviness at the affected area
Bulge formation at affected site
Burning, gurgling or aching at the site of the bulge
Difficulty in swallowing
Mostly hernias aren’t life-threatening but they do not vanish at their own. Medication may solve this issue but surgery is best option to prevent dangerous complications in future.
